Behold! The most wonderful (or most dreaded depending on your flavor preferences) time of the year is upon us: Pumpkin Spice Season. From the classic PSL to some more obscure spiced treats, restaurants and companies take full advantage of this fall sensation full of cinnamon and nutmeg — and rarely any pumpkin.

IHOP is one of those restaurants known to subscribe to the seasonal trend, releasing pumpkin and cinnamon swirl pancakes for a limited time each Autumn. The pancake haven has taken the trend a step farther this year to give fans a chance to drink their pumpkin spice in the form of a pumpkin stout.

The brew, named cleverly as IHOPS, perfect for when you’re sick of chewing your pumpkin spice, was made in collaboration with New York brewery Keegan Ales.

Founder of the brewery,Tommy Keegan, said of the mashup, "We're excited to partner with IHOP on this first-of-its kind brew and bring fans a unique craft beer that blends the deep, roasted flavors of our stout with hints of pumpkin, vanilla and IHOP's iconic pancake batter."

Yum! Who doesn’t love when a beer tastes like pancake batter?

It will be debuted on Saturday, September 29th at the Bacon and Beer Classic Festival in Flushing Meadows, New York. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to sip on the pancakey stout while munching on a stack at IHOP – bottles will only be available in the Northeast at select beer festivals and some bars.  

But if you’re always on the hunt for the next big Pumpkin Spice trend, make sure you check out IHOPS, where breakfast and beer collide.
